Hundreds of people are protesting. They are standing and shouting that they want freedom. They have been in detention for months. They have problems in their countries and they want freedom. On the 28 feb the minister in Afghanistan refused deportations from EU countries and Australia – the UK is the only country that they are forcing them to go back.
We plan to start a protest tomorrow. Tomorrow we are having a hunger strike. We are trying to raise the following issues
- Stop Fast Track – seeking asylum is not a crime, it’s unfair to be in detention while seeking protection.
- Release asylum seekers – there is no reason to lock them up.
There are others, we’ll get back to after our discussions.
